Adrien Broner has reportedly injured his right hand and delayed his next fight until February.
“Adrien hurt his hand in the June 9th fight against William Hutchinson,” Broner’s trainer, Kevin Cunningham, told Boxing Scene.
“He returned to camp for six weeks for this fight and re-injured it sparring. He took a couple [of] cortisone shots and went back to work. He hurt it again in training and the doctor said he needs to take time off.”
Despite the injury, Broner is not short on confidence. The Cincinnati, Ohio native has his sights set on the top fighters within the super lightweight and welterweight divisions.
“The hell with tune-up fights,” Broner said.
“I’m ready to take on any of the champions in the 140-pound and 147-pound divisions. I’m ready to fight the big guys. Everything they think I don’t have, I still got. I’m ready to fight Ryan Garcia or Rolando Romero or the winner of the Regis Prograis—Devin Haney fight.”
Don King and Casino Miami Jai Alai will move forward with the rest of the event as scheduled. On December 2, Ian Green will fight Vaughn Alexander for the WBA Continental America Championship. Additionally, Tre’Sean Wiggins will fight a opponent to be determined for the NABA Welterweight Championship
